Hi folks,

As some of you may recall, I've been pondering a viable replacement to
California's jungle primary, and I think I've worked it out. Full
writeup is on my blog:
<https://blog.robla.net/2018/11/20/replacing-the-jungle-primary/>

In the long writeup, I propose two new acronyms to describe two
different approaches:
1. Majority approval filter (MAF):
<https://electowiki.org/wiki/MAF>

2. Maximum approval top-two (MATT):
<https://electowiki.org/wiki/MATT>

As of right now, the blog post is much better. The electowiki pages
are pretty raw. But, I'm hoping that will change soon (maybe with
your help!)

Rob
p.s. I think I'm ready to declare the new electowiki.org to be the
official version of the wiki, since it's in a lot better shape..
There's a few things I need to wrap up on the old wiki to make the
migration complete, though.

Hi Rob,

I like the MAF proposal. I've posted in favor of PR approval based runoff
methods before, almost exactly 2 years ago, in fact.

My only caveat would be that there is a theoretical possibility that
including everyone who gets more than 50% approval could introduce a clone
crowding effect. Do you want any limits on the number?
